EXLOVERS ANNOUNCE UK & IRELAND TOUR WITH NOAH AND THE WHALE IN MAY

Indie pop five piece Exlovers have announced they will support Noah and the Whale on their UK and Ireland May tour dates, following the release of new single ‘Blowing Kisses’ in February.

Following on from a full European tour with the band, the Young & Lost label mates will commence the UK and Ireland dates in Manchester on 3rd May with the final date in Cambridge on 18th May. A London headline show at The Roundhouse will take place on 16th May.

Exlovers single ‘Blowing Kisses’, released in February, was a perfect taster of what is to come from the band this year. A two minute rollercoaster ride of glorious melodic pop with delightful vocal harmonies, ‘Blowing Kisses’ received strong support from the likes of Huw Stephens on Radio 1 along with 6Music and XFM.

Formed in late 2008 by singer and song writer Peter Scott, Exlovers have a gorgeous wistful indie-pop sound full of boy-girl harmonies that combine sweetly sombre lyrical musings with lo-fi guitars. Reminiscent of artists such as Teenage Fanclub, The Cure, The Dandy Warhols and Belle and Sebastian, Exlovers have a deliciously nostalgic 90s indie sound that is instantly warming.

Peter and guitarist Chris met in St Ives Cornwall and became friends through a mutual love of music. Peter then moved to London to study at Goldsmiths University at which time he met co-singer Laurel. The three of them began recording demos with the pair singing and were introduced to drummer Brooke and bassist Danny. The five musicians soon began writing and touring together.

The band have just finished recording at Rockfield Studios in Wales for their debut album with Demian Castellanos and Jimmy Robertson (Florence and the Machine, Big Pink) which will be released later this year with a follow-up single to ‘Blowing Kisses’ in June.

After touring with the likes of Golden Silvers, Pete and the Pirates and Pete Doherty, Exlovers recently performed a string of UK headline shows and will head out on the road with Noah and the Whale in the UK and Ireland next month. Full dates below:
